54 years old, and 30 years younger than my father who witnessed the last World Series game played at Wrigley and 60 years younger than my paternal grandfather (now deceased) who witnessed the last Cub World Series win. Now living in CO Springs because of doctors orders, with our two adult children who are cum laude and summa cum laude status at the U of CO.
